A Midsummer Night's Dream is an enchanting and extraordinary comedy. With its rich poetry and vigorous prose, and its combination of magic, myth, romance and humor, it ranks among Shakespeare's most popular and memorable plays. However, it has also increasingly been recognized as a profound and penetrating exploration of love, desire, gender, social hierarchy, dramatic art, imagination and vision.

In this Reader's Guide, Nicolas Tredell:

· explores the key critical responses to the play, from the late seventeenth to the twenty-first centuries
· provides succinct and searching accounts of the most vibrant commentaries and interpretations
· sets these accounts in their critical, theoretical and historical contexts.

Informed and incisive, this survey is an invaluable resource for students, teachers and all those who wish to enhance their grasp of Dream criticism and engage in the ongoing critical debates about the play.

About the Author:

NICOLAS TREDELL is Consultant Editor of the Palgrave Macmillan Readers' Guides series and has produced a number of Guides for the series. He has published widely on literary criticism and theory – his previous publications include: The Critical Decade (1993), Conversations with Critics (1994) and a history of film theory, Cinemas of the Mind (2002). For many years he has taught and convened Sussex University literature courses, most recently on Shakespeare.

Review:

"This is a helpful book: it identifies key critical accounts; it organizes them effectively within a larger narrative that is not at all intrusive; it summarizes them clearly and illustrates its summaries with well-chosen quotation. Its guidance is always helpful and balanced and the book provides overall a very good grounding in criticism of the play." —Nick Potter, Swansea Metropolitan University, UK
